Posted

Middletown police today will file charges against a man who fired a shot at another man during a road rage incident in the borough Sunday.

Police say the driver of a white Chrysler Sebring convertible fired a single shot from a 9 mm handgun at the driver of a silver Kia Optima sedan.

The incident occurred at 7:59 p.m. Sunday in the first block of West High Street. Both vehicles then fled the scene onto Spring Street in separate directions. No one was injured.

Police were able to obtain video surveillance showing the drivers and both vehicles.

The man who fired the shot from the Chrysler convertible has turned himself into police and will be charged today, interim Middletown Police Chief Sgt. Dennis Morris told the Press & Journal. Police have also recovered the handgun that the man used.

The incident remains under investigation. Police ask anyone with information to contact them through the Middletown police Crimewatch page, or by calling Dauphin County Dispatch at 717-558-6900.
